Are you talking about trim tabs Rens? If so, do you know what brand they are?

there is a light hydraulic oil for trim tabs and drive trim pump......it's also the same viscocity as Automatic transmission fluid you use in the steering pump...

I'd stick with the light oil myself....but have in a pinch used ATF to top it off....
